Electric Cars Are Unsafe, Even When Parked.

Worldwide demand for electric cars is dropping, as evidenced by Tesla's recent price reductions and a very soft market for used EV's. Although the raw numbers may suggest demand is surging, when you analyze the data you see that sales are lifted by large government subsidies (tax incentives) and markdowns that help bring the cost of ownership closer to conventional vehicles. It's reasonable to assume that without the subsidies and price drops, many EV buyers would opt for rides powered by gas or diesel. The EV's that people are buying are primarily new ones with factory warranties. The used EV car market has seriously declined as consumers worry about battery life and the potential for fires in older battery packs. 

Of course, new electric vehicles burst into flames all the time, often with no warning. And when they do, there's nothing firefighters can do except wait for the fire to burn out on its own. While petrol powered cars catch fire more often than electric cars, the petrol powered car fires can be put out very quickly, sometimes with a handheld extinguisher. The fires in electric cars can't be put out by conventional means. Firefighters use as much as 20,000 gallons of water on an EV fire, and in one case they simply dug a big hole, filled it with water, and dumped an entire car into the hole. EV fires also produce hazardous chemicals such as hydrogen fluoride, which is highly toxic to first responders and spectators. The fires are so hot they can destroy the reinforced concrete in parking garages, potentially leading to structural collapse and mass casualties. The risk is so great, parking garages are beginning to ban EV's and hybrids from their facilities. Weight is another concern for parking garages, as they were never engineered to support the weight of electric vehicles. A typical petrol powered car weighs between 2800 and 3800 pounds. By comparison, a Tesla 3 weighs 4100 pounds, a Tesla X weighs 5250 pounds, a Ford F-150 Lightning Extended-Range weighs 6600 pounds, and a GMC Hummer EV hits the scales at a staggering 9100 pounds! While having a few of these sitting on a parking deck is probably safe, these structures were never intended to be filled with heavy EV's. At some point in the future expect to read about a catastrophic parking deck collapse, followed by lithium battery fires that consume every vehicle parked in it and probably a lot of people, too.

Another safety concern is EMF radiation from the batteries, motors, and various electronic devices in EV's: 

"According to a study by Scripps Clinic Research Foundation, high levels of EMF from EVs make the drivers drowsy and sleepy while driving. Based on the study, drivers who are exposed to high levels of EMF while driving are likely to sleep 52 minutes faster than those exposed to low levels of EMF. In addition, exposure to radiation while driving can result in headaches, neck stiffness, and dry eyes or blurred vision. Long-term exposure to these sources of EMF radiation may have long-term health complications. According to Dr. Joel Moskowitz at the University of California Berkeley, hybrid cars and other electric cars have increased levels of ELF that cause cancer, increase the level of oxidative stress that leads to DNA fragmentation, cause cell damage, fertility issues, drowsiness, etc." [source: EMFGuardTips.com]

If all these reasons aren't enough to make you think twice about buying an electric vehicle, at least have some concern for the people living in extreme poverty and working in unbearably harsh conditions mining the rare earth minerals used to produce EV batteries. Having affluent people take advantage of tax breaks while the world's most vulnerable people are making less than a dollar a day in brutal work camps hardly seems like an enlightened path forward. And the environmental damage done by extracting those minerals will no doubt come back to haunt us...even those of us with the good sense to buy gasoline instead of electrons.

The Left Is Using Minorities For Truly Evil Purposes.

The same people the left is celebrating today are the first people who will be sent to the camps if the Marxist revolution succeeds. Minorities of all types are being used for truly evil purposes and they cannot see the danger that lies closely ahead.

History teaches us that when leftist authoritarian regimes take control of a nation, it isn't long before a purge begins. Those who betrayed the former system and think they're now protected, the physically & mentally handicapped, and people perceived as sexual or social deviants are rounded up, shipped to camps, and eventually killed. Racial and religious minorities are also targeted. (Keep in mind that who is considered to be a "minority" can vary from one country to another.)

But until they take control of a nation, the left will use the people they consider to be "useful idiots" to create chaos in the name of diversity, equity, and equality. While some of the things the "useful idiots" demand will seem fair & compassionate, others will be too extreme for the majority to accept, and this will lead to social unrest, widespread division, violent clashes, and eventually the complete breakdown of our existing civil society. When the collapse comes, the Marxist authoritarians will step in and promise to restore order, telling us we can have safety and security once again if we just accept a complete rebuild of our government and our economy based on the evil principles of Communism.

And then the purge begins. 

The Radical Left Controls The Language. Conservatives Have To Step Up And Fight Back.

In the fight to save America, it's bad enough that we're severely outgunned in the mass media. With even Fox News being exposed as just another propaganda site for the globalists, conservatives are left with fewer and fewer places to get accurate information and have our voices heard. But what's equally bad is our failure to control the language even in those places where we're still allowed to speak. I'm referring to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, where people of all political persuasions mingle, but the voices of the radical left scream the loudest. Not only are they the loudest, they're also more skilled at using powerful language to create emotional responses.

Since I'm no longer on Facebook but I still have an active Twitter account, I'll use that platform to show some examples.

Here's a tweet from the hive queen, Nancy Pelosi:

Nancy Pelosi tweet

"Republicans are holding middle class families hostage to pass their extreme MAGA agenda and give tax cuts for the wealthy. A default on America's debt would eliminate jobs, increase housing costs, and threaten retirement plans."

Note the language: she uses the expression "extreme MAGA agenda" to describe the negotiating process used by the GOP to win concessions from Joe Biden. This portrays Republicans as mean-spirited and callous, while completely avoiding the fact that Biden is 50% responsible for the stand-off. That's a classic tactic of the Democrats: pointing their fingers at others while never taking any blame for anything. Whatever is happening is always someone else's fault. Pelosi then goes on to use the emotion of fear to drive home her assertion, without providing any proof that a default would actually lead to the elimination of jobs, increased housing costs, or threats to retirement plans. But she doesn't have to provide proof, because once she invokes fear, proof no longer matters.

What makes the left's messages more powerful, however, is the repetition of labels and themes. In addition to a continuous portrayal of conservatives as evil and heartless, they use negative labels that are used by several different members of the Democratic Party cult at the same time in numerous posts across multiple social media sites. This is the same tactic used by advertising agencies that want you to buy their junk food and it's the same tactic used by propagandist's who are pushing vaccines or this week's war.

Just as Nancy Pelosi used the term "extreme MAGA agenda", look at how similar terms are used by other political operatives to influence public opinion into thinking "MAGA" is somehow bad for America:

Democratic Party tweet about Ron DeSantis

Democratic Party tweet about MAGA and Ron DeSantis

Ted Lieu tweet

Adam Kinzinger MAGA brain worms tweet

Rashida Tlaib MAGA tweet

Chuck Schumer tweet about Supreme Court

President Biden tweet about debt crisis

Joe Biden tweet about Kevin McCarthy

Kamala Harris tweet about abortion

Words are powerful, and the radical left knows how to use them. By repeating "MAGA" over and over in posts that attack Republicans, they've managed to turn something we should all agree upon, "Make America Great Again", into a something negative that should be avoided. And "MAGA" is only one term they use to their advantage. You'll see them use the same tactic on other issues, including climate change, Ukraine, COVID, and the trans agenda.

Sadly, the GOP and other conservatives haven't been united in using the same tactics to support our own positions. And as a result, the left looks powerful and united while we look weak and unorganized.

It's time for us to step up and fight back. Let's fight fire with fire. Let's repeatedly call them what they are: the radical left, Marxists, reckless, and irresponsible. Use these words and others over and over until they begin to stick and people's perceptions of the left begins to change. We cannot allow them to control the language anymore. 

It's not enough to try and win the hearts and minds of the public: we have to show them what is truly in the hearts and minds of the extremists who are hell-bent on tearing America apart and handing it over to the totalitarian globalists.

You Cannot Comply Your Way Out Of A Tyranny.

MEP Christine Anderson

MEP (Member of the European Parliament) Christine Anderson issues a wake-up call: “You cannot comply your way out of a tyranny”. 

“In the entire history of mankind, there has never been a political elite concerned about the well-being of regular people, and it isn’t any different now,” she stressed.

“You cannot comply your way out of a tyranny. It is impossible. Trying to do so, you will only feed a gigantic alligator in the hopes of being eaten last. But guess what? Your turn will come.”

“Speak up! ... stop complying — start rebelling,” she urged. “In order to deal with this unfree world, to defy this unfree world, I have decided to become so absolutely free that my very existence is an act of rebellion. And that’s what we all need to do.”

COVID Was A Test Of Character.

COVID and the jabs were a test to find out who the cowards are. Your friends and family members who turned on you then are the people you won't be able to count on during a real crisis.
